Welcome to St James Church School. The children at St James are our greatest asset but we are also blessed with engaged parents, a loving community and a team of staff who put children at the centre of all that we do. We are an ambitious school located near to the centre of the historic town of Taunton. We cater for children aged 2-11 years and have 14 classes from the Foundation Stage to Year 6 as well as our large and successful Nursery. Our school community is very diverse with over 25% of our children speaking English as an additional language. We take great pride in this and fully utilise the children’s many different languages, their cultural diversity and heritage as often as possible.
